Kafue Hippo Lodge


... is located in the Kafue area of northern Zambia.

This lodge can work well as a first stop for overland safaris coming out of Lusaka. Turning north off the sealed road at Mumbwa, it is a very pleasant drive through farmlands to the lesser used eastern gate and on to the remotely located lodge.

After a stay of two or three nights, it is then possible to boat up the river to Lufupa and on by road to Busanga Plains Camp in the north.

Kafue Hippo Lodge itself is a relatively simple affair, very much in the traditional Kafue style, with stone and thatch public areas and a modest pool. Whilst there are still two simple tented rooms, the remaining four have been upgraded into safari houses of various descriptions.

Activities include the usual day and night vehicle safaris, walking and motorboat safaris, plus swimming in hot springs and even a visit to an old copper mine.
